It’s my young brother’s 52nd Birthday today. But I forgot, in the midst of a period in which last week was bookended by two funerals, to send over a greetings card to Florida. I know he drops in here every single day to have a look at whatever rubbish I’ve posted and to be impressed by the guest postings, and so I’d be very grateful if you would consider passing on your best wishes to SC in the comments section.  It’ll make me feel less guilty.
